  1. Filtering the frniedly skiesSo maybe you’re tired of that one frnied that posts nothing but song lyrics. Maybe it’s the one who is constantly posting political rants. Or perhaps the one who apparently does nothing but play Facebook games all day. Whatever. The point is, you’re sick of it and you want to know what to do about it.Take controlFacebook offers some degree of control as to what you see in your feed from your frnieds and page likes. First of all, there’s the blunt instruments obviously, you can unfrnied someone, but that’s a bit extreme and antisocial if they still post some things you want to hear about. The other blunt instrument would be the Hide option, as seen here:Why anyone would want to hide our sister site is beyond me, but this hides all updates from this frnied or page from showing up in your feed, but you can still see what they have posted by going to their page. A bit imprecise, but simple and it works. Of course, you can undo this at any time.For a bit more control, go to the frnied or page in question’s profile page, hover your mouse over the button that says Friends or Subscribed, and click Settings. When you’ve done that, you will see a menu that will allow you to pick what kind of updates you wish to see from this frnied uncheck the ones you don’t want to see.Unfortunately, while this offers you control over what type of update you get from frnieds, it doesn’t let you filter status updates by content whether it’s about what they had for dinner last night, or that [insert politician here] is the worst thing since the bubonic plague. Fortunately, there’s an option for that.Baby, pleaseBabies and kids are an ever-present topic on Facebook, and it seems there are some people out there that are just tired of hearing about the 347th cute thing Junior did this morning. Well, some computer savvy people who feel that way created the . Install the extension which works with both Chrome and Firefox and add a couple keywords to help it out, and it will happily replace all baby picture and posts with photos of cats (or whatever you want, though cats are the default).The awesome thing about unbaby.me is that since it works on a keyword basis, you can add any keywords you want to its filter list politics, food, type stories, whatever. While not a Facebook-supported filter, it might be worth a shot at blocking some junk without having to block the person.Mister FixerIn addition to unbaby.me, is another keyword-based filtering system, among other features for Facebook. Social Fixer works on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera 11+, and Grease Monkey a few more choices than unbaby.me offers. Its keyword filtering also offers a bit more flexibility and control but it won’t replace the political posts with pictures of cats. Well, for some of you that’s probably okay too.GD Star Ratingloading…

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
